Are you looking for a selection of great books to read before traveling to England or perhaps books to read while in England? Either way I have come up with a fantastic selection of some of the best English novels – fiction/modern fiction and also some great non-fiction books for you to peruse at your leisure!

How do I possibly choose just a few (9 in total) for this list of my best books about England? It could literally have ended up having hundreds of books on it and that would be slightly overwhelming for you the reader!

I have therefore decided to choose my top 3 books about England in the following categories for this article!

CLASSIC ENGLISH FICTION

MODERN ENGLISH FICTION

NON-FICTION BOOK CHOICES ABOUT ENGLAND

Let me know if you agree with my choices in the comment section – are there other best books about England you would have included in your top 3 in each category? 

In terms of modern English fiction my favourite author is Kate Atkinson. Ever since I read her first novel Behind the Scenes at the Museum I have been a fan. If you have yet to read any of her books I would recommend the Jackson Brodie series (a Private Investigator working in Edinburgh)

And lastly my final category is for those books that just represent the idiosyncrasies and often absurdities of English life so well. If you enjoy a good laugh or are want to explore more of England then these are the books for you! And my favourite has to be the musings of America’s own Bill Bryson!
